Ok so, thanks to the folks on here I've discovered I have these in my garden. I really like them and would like more. Would it be possible to harvest the seeds from the pods and plant them. If so how would one go about that. Is it just a matter of spreading them in a prepared area of soil and hoping for the best or is there more to it. Thanks TGGimage

    Collect them when they're ripe and dry and sow them, leave them outside in the shade. Or save them til mid-winter and sow them, cold GH, cold frame or outside, no heat required.

    Or easiest, just let them do it for themselves

    That's half the fun Jo! I was given some seed for Barlow type flowers, which they were the first year or so. Several years down the line I have new colours and lots of lovely clematis flowered ones as well as some that are real old pleated grannies' bonnets. Oh, and some barlows!

    I weed out the dirty pinks and off-whites and have introduced other species to get reds and yellows in there
